Yes, but it is not credit bearing so you cannot get a reduction in credit requirement at another MSW program.
Yes, they are graded.
Anyone can engage in the MasterTrack Certificate program.
No they are sequential.
You may apply for the MSW program before, during or after starting or completing the Master Track certificate program.
You can expect to spend between 3 and 4 hours per week on the MasterTrack courses, assuming you take them one at a time.
The online program is part time and is seven semesters long (two years and four months). The online program will include the Interpersonal Practice in Behavioral Health and Mental Health and Substance Abuse pathway.
You may apply for the online program in advance of starting the Master Track. Our online program application will be available in August. Our first online cohort will begin in May 2021, but you will need to complete the Master Track beginning this fall. Completing the Master Track will reduce the requirements in the University of Michigan MSW program from 60 to 45. The Master Track is not credit bearing, so it will not reduce requirements in other MSW programs.
